I was informed today that some organizations are pushing to have Pedophilia combined with the LGBT community, claiming it is a sexual orientation and therefore pedophiles should be protected by the same laws that protect the LGBT community. If you are part of the LGBT community and/or a parent, think of how this would affect you and more importantly, possibly your children.
This deeply affects everybody. Parents who drop their children off at a daycare center before work could potentially be entrusting the welfare of their child(ren) to a pedophile protected by anti discrimination laws originally implemented to protect the LGBT community. This could even protect said pedophile from being fired. Pedophiles could possibly pass under the radar as a teacher and be protected by anti-discrimination laws.
A person who falls into the LGBT spectrum is not mentally ill. As a member of the LGBT community myself, I personally deeply despise the sickening thought of being lumped together with pedophiles. If allowed, this WILL affect the way the world looks at our community. We are already discriminated against in nearly every corner of the world, and while we are gradually making progress, this proposal could literally be the last stone to be put in place to justify the slaughter of the LGBT community.
Pedophiles do not belong in any community be it physical or not. They should be kept in prison, well out of the reach of potential victims, and most certainly not protected by laws meant for persons who actually need them to prevent their lives from being affected. But most importantly, parents really need to realize that this WILL put your children in extreme danger. This needs to be stopped.
This is possibly opening the door to including rapists and murderers to also be protected under law.
So I petition the LGBT community, centers which provide assistance to our community, and public businesses and families everywhere to protest the dangerous proposition presented before you.
